Glympse
Android & iPhone

This GPS based app allows us to send our real-time location to friends or family. Why would you want to do that? If you want to update anyone on where you are or you’re running late, all you need to do is send your location. They can view it on their mobile device even without installing the app! If you’re meeting up with friends but they changed their location, they can send you their Glympse location. We love how this app allows real-time locations with multiple people in one view; they can see how far or close you are and vice versa.

GymPact
Android & iPhone

Now you can earn money when you go to they gym! GASP. Now that’s an incentive! Never miss a workout and earn a reward for it. What’s the catch? GymPact allows you to make a pact by choosing how many days you want to commit to workout. If you choose 4 days out of the week and miss one day, you owe Gympact a stake of $5, $10, $15, etc — you will choose the amount at the time of your pact. Your stakes actually go to the people who are earning their workout. To us, this app is a great catch and a big motivator. Earn cash for meeting your goal, paid for by non-exercisers!
